This needs a reason statement. The previous paragraph has a good example
of this e.g. "Various rarely-used functions ... have been deprecated."

We need a reason here like:

* Various symbols previously defined in libresolv have been moved to libc
  in order to prepare for libresolv moving entirely into libc (see earlier
  entry for merging libraries into libc). ...

Looking forward to a v2.
